Divided into three sections covering: a description of language and language use; essential areas of enquiry; and language skills and assessment, the third edition of this highly successful textbook provides: * an introductory chapter which familiarises readers with key issues and recurrent themes; * 17 chapters offering extended surveys of central elements of applied linguistics; * two brand-new chapters on multilingualism and forensic linguistics; * re-written chapters on psycholinguistics, language learners, reading and assessment; * hands-on activities and further reading sections for each chapter, encouraging practical analysis and wider reading; * revised and updated references for every chapter.
